Yep... I got home last night from my 7 minute Burpee WOD around 8:00pm, had dinner, went to bed and got up at 4:50am and headed right back to CrossFit Wachusett for my usual Friday WOD!! Is this torture? Absolutely NOT!! I love it!!
My legs are a little sore still, but I think its the last few days of workouts and not just the burpees. We have been doing a lot of KB swings and we did some squat cleans... yeah, its all just blending together!! Alas I was still excited for todays WOD.
Last night before doing 12.1 I worked my double unders for a while. I have decided to go back to square one with them. I was getting myself so frustrated that I couldnt stand it. I have been getting a lot of help on Thursday nights from R and last night was no different. I know what he (and K, and Hubs) are all going to say when I am working on them... but I just have to keep at it. I was able to (last night) go back to the double, single, double, single way... which is how I originally learned before I lost them. R had me trying to slow down my rope and jump and RELAX... which is hard for me to do. But... I was consistent... so that was key.
Going into todays 7 rounds, each involving 30 double unders... I didnt want to frustrate myself. I just decided to attempt them in the same way I knew how... double, single, double, single... only counting the doubles (so I could be Rx). I knew that was going to take much less time than the time it would take to do them all one or two at a time with some MAJOR frustration in the middle of it! I got my rope and lined up my 75lb bar for the front squats and waited for the 3, 2, 1 go....
It was frustrating, but it was much much less frustrating than not getting any double unders, so I will take it! I feel like they went relatively quick and I banged out the front squats with no problem. The weight was pretty light so I knew it wouldnt be an issue. KP and I were neck and neck for the first round but girlfriend can bust out double unders like nobodys business!! I will get there just have to get my timing right. I am going in the right direction.
I am exhausted and am in need for a good nights sleep before tomorrow mornings attempt at 12.1 again. I am going to try my damndest to get at least 100 burpees in that 7 minutes, maybe working out in the morning on Saturday will make a difference... who knows... why guess... I will find out tomorrow!!
